Launching Your “Calling” During Quarantine – 10 Tips

Updated: Aug 6, 2021


Hi Godpreneurs,


As I connect with more of you on my Twitter and Facebook, it’s obvious this Coronavirus craze has been taking over our entire attention span and resources as business owners. It has turned many of our business plans upside down.


Amonst my own inner circle of Christian business owners, we’ve gone from insecurity to fear, then panic, helplessness, recalibrating, and finally to damage forecasting and praying for this to pass already!


However, if we live in fear, we could miss out on all the BENEFITS that can come from this season of retreat. The biggest one is that, overnight, the entire world went to ONLINE EDUCATION. And now businesses were forced to have a REMOTE working strategy, which was already beneficial even before all of this. Also, many new opportunities for collaborations are popping up as there’s a new sense of urgency to come up with creative solutions to run their businesses.


Even through all the challenges of the Coronavirus, as Christians, we don’t live in the spirit of fear.


The Bible says,


"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Timothy 1:7)


What if God wants to use this time for the business world to rise up to new levels of love and self-control? It seems like overnight, most of us have been given back one of our most valuable resources – time.


What if God wants us to draw closer to him in order to develop better time management habits so we can step closer into the business He created us to do?

Time is a wonderful gift from God if you know how to use it wisely.


Take the #QuarantineTimeChallenge


I’ve launched a campaign to inspire Christian entrepreneurs worldwide to take this #QuarantineaTime to re-start, re-build, and re-engineer the Business God Created You to Start!


During this time, let’s discover what you could do with all this season of time God as given us in order to jumpstart your business ideas:


1. Launch Your Personal Website


Check out www.alexmiranda22.com. It’s basically my online resume. I believe all entrepreneurs need one of these, regardless if you plan on becoming a personal brand later. I think this has become as necessary and fundamental as a business card. Essentially, it’s an online business card.


You can go to www.wix.com/templates/personal-brand and see that there are so many you can choose from and have yours up and running in no time.

This is a fabulous opportunity to stop for a moment and document your entrepreneurial journey and ventures. This will motivate you to carry on.

2. Finally, update your portfolio, case studies, and client spotlights


I know I’m not alone when I say that I could be doing a much better job at showing off my client work and spotlighting client success stories.


It frustrates me to no end that, even as a branding agency, I do a terrible job at keeping up with my portfolio.


I’m sure you’ve also been looking for some spare time to update your website portfolio.


Me and my team are going to look through all our folders and uncover every project we’ve been working on lately, freshen up our portfolio design, and pack into it all the experience that we’ve have gathered.


Regardless of your industry, if you take time to document your case studies, you’ll be opening some new doors for your business.


Remember that every case is a story. You should give a background, what the challenge was, and how you came alongside to bring success to your client.

Here’s a good example

  1. Doctor Transformational Success Story

  2. Branding Agency Case Study

3. Offer to help, NOT SELL. Here’s how.


The other day I sent an email out with ideas for my clients on things they can be doing while under #QuarantineTime. I wasn’t selling anything. In fact, my email said “reply to me and I’ll help you brainstorm ideas for your business.”


I've seen other coaches offer free 20-minute strategy sessions. And I've seen some companies open up their online courses for FREE during this time, offering a 2-month coupon.
